Chandra Bahadur Dangi (1ft 11.6in), the world’s shortest man and Jyoti Amge (2ft), the world’s shortest woman met for the first time to celebrate the organisation which made them famous. The 18-year-old (Jyoti) from India and the 72-year-old (Chandra Bahadur) Nepalese both made headlines last winter when they were given their titles by the Guinness World Records.
Chandra and Jyoti may be generations apart but were joking and laughing as they posed for photos with the new book, both dressed in traditional outfits from their native countries. The photoshoot for the release of the book gave them another record to add to their list – it is the first time the world’s smallest man and woman have met in recorded history.
The official authority on record-breaking achievement is set to release its the 57th edition of the world’s best-selling copyright book, Guinness World Records 2013.
